@jddoerer, I guess we’re using the term “fact” pretty loosely at this point huh…

@trek79, there’s a good ted talk about happiness that discusses the relation it has to wealth.

I’m on my phone right now, so it’d be a pain in the ass to look it up. But basically, the stats indicate that money “can’t buy you happiness”, but a lack of money (aka being below or cloes to below the poverty line) does directly correlate with unhappiness. So those that are really struggling to get by are more unhappy on average. However, there comes a point where, once you have the essentials and a few comfort items, your baseline happiness is not effected by money.

@qwuakeup, Evolution (Or natural selection). Simple for me.

I find it awe inspiring at how it works. The way it all works and has made such a diverse set of life makes me wonder so much.

The fact that 99.9% of all species are extinct yet so many exist. How through evolution the strongest survive (Maybe not anymore in Human terms) and that alone makes the species better.

I am currently reading some books on Evolution. It has made me once again inspired.

I find many other things inspiring, but this is my 1 thing.

@thoughtless, But your name is “emptyminded” and “thoughtless”, surely you’re not thinking about anything and therefore have no free will :P

Nah sorry you’re right, I should have worded that better. It’s not a fact, it’s just my own personal view on the matter. Well then again – most of the “facts” on this thread are based on human perception so there are probably heaps of invalid “facts”. We should all just go back to Descarte’s way of thinking haha

@SFHardy, But your name is “emptyminded” and “thoughtless”, surely you’re not thinking about anything and therefore have no free will :P

lol thinking and willing are 2 different things… not thinking about anything (impossible) does not mean im not willing any event or scenario to occur

Nah sorry you’re right, I should have worded that better. It’s not a fact, it’s just my own personal view on the matter.

Trust is like a glass once it breaks you can not match the glass again.you can buy a new one but this time you should be careful that you buy the original one.

History repeats itself time after time after time.

Our bodies are just shells in which our soul inhabits, when we die we are put into another shell. This process is repeated until we Realize what we are and when we do, we are allowed onto the other realm.

If no one feared anything, would there be chaos or order?

Looks(beauty) play a major part in our lives. Just think about this for a minute.

@ethyrael, @BassInstinct, …

That we are simultaneously the One and the Many, while nothing truly doesn’t exist. I guess that’s non-duality for you.
